First-round draft choice Nick Fairley stopped by the 2011 Detroit Lions Draft Party at the Hard Rock Cafe to meet with fans.
Fairley on his experience at the Detroit Lions Draft Party at Hard Rock Cafe Detroit: “Aww man, it was great. When I walked in, they almost blew the roof off the place. So it’s great coming down and getting the support of the fans for the first time.”
Fairley also had the opportunity to talk to Defensive Rookie of the Year Ndamukong Suh. Fairley met Suh at the 2011 Super Bowl and is looking forward to playing alongside him.
On having talked to Suh: “I talked to Suh today and he gave me some great advice; I talked to Kyle Vanden Bosch and all of them guys. I’m really just ready to go and I want to pick their brain … They’re going to give me some great advice so I can come in as a rookie and know what to do.”
On what Suh said to him: “He basically was like, ‘Man, you’ve got be ready to come to work; they’re going to push you and try to get the best out of you, but you’re going to have fun.’ He said that’s one thing that they do here is: have fun and work hard. So I’m ready to come here and get things together.”
